As fall gets underway, you’ll want to make sure your programmable thermostat is set to take advantage of savings this season. The good thing about these thermostats is that you can set your preferred temperatures for almost every period of the day. You can also create settings that’ll last throughout the week and, depending on your thermostat model, even the weekend.
Here are a few tips you can use so you can save money with your programmable thermostat:
- In the early morning, you can set your thermostat so that it ramps up the heat just in time for you to wake up.
- Your home won’t need all of that heat once you and your family leave for the day. Program a temperature setback of approximately 8 to 10 degrees to occur once you leave. This way, you’ll be able to save significantly on your energy costs.
- Just before you get back from work or school, your thermostat can be set to swing into action, making your home comfortable upon your return.
- When everyone’s tucked in for the night, one of your thermostat presets can set nighttime temperatures back by several degrees, saving you energy and money in the process.
